The Sweet Christian Bride

Hand-crafted Candles

It pays to have an artistic family member or friend who wants to help with your wedding planning. 

For this particular wedding, the mother of the bride sculpted candle holders for each of the guests.  They were all similarly cut, which allowed for a streamlined bulk creation, but the overall design was distinct.  They were beautiful!

If you have someone close to you who is gifted in ceramics, or in any other art form for that matter, think about what they could design and create for you.  Having a hand-crafted item catapults the value of a favor so that something as simple as a candle holder becomes highly prized.

As a show of gratitude, I recommend accepting these favors as your friend’s or family member’s wedding present, making clear to him or her that there is no need for them to spend additional time or money.  They might very well want to get you a gift anyway, but hand-crafting favors is already a top-ten wedding gift because of the burden it relieves you from.
